Fancy parties, luxury lifestyle, expensive clothes, popularity and beautiful residences. Are all these really what being a royal is all about? What are royals really there for? Are they just there to wear a fancy crown and sit on a throne barking orders? Other people may think that the crown is just a fancy headdress, but it is much more than that. I have a lot of things to say about royals so lets get started!
Royals may just look like people that wear fancy dresses and eat fancy food but they have actually done a lot to help their country such as:
1. They act as a focus of national identity. Other countries may have their national flags and coat of arms, but for countries that have monarchs, they are their focus for national identity. The british royal family is the most popular royal family. They serve as symbols of their countrys pride, dignity and identity. They are like coat of arms. They represent their country and make them known.
2. They help to promote a lot of things. The royal family can attend up to 100 charity events and they help to raise up to a million pounds. This is very beneficiary because it is for a very good cause. They use their popularity and influence to help the less privilrdged. I think that that is a very noble act.
3. They travel to promote diplomatic relationships with other countries. They are the face of their country. They travel around the globe to represent their country where ever they are called upon.
4. They reward worthy and competent people who have proven themselves in the society by giving them titles.
If you ask me, the royals have done a lot of things and they deserve to be appreciated. They might not actively take part in politics but that does not make them useless. People may think that they just sit around all day doing nothing but that is not the case. They actually do a lot of good and noble things that deserve to be acknowledged. The crown is not just a fancy headdress, it comes with a myraid of responsibilities.
